I’m allowed to gloat… We had a perfect chunk of roast beef today. Recipe? Take some lean beef, top-side, I think. Sprinkle with crushed juniper berries, salt and pepper. Put dripping (schmaltz) on top. Cover completely with schwarzwalder schinken — cured, raw ham, not bacon, in thin slices. Put with half-boiled potatoes in an oven dish. Cover with greased paper. Cook 15 minutes for every metric pound at 220 degrees centigrade. We had 1.5 kg, so we removed the paper at 30 minutes and took the dish out of the oven at 45 minutes. Enjoy!
No pictures, but Irina will post pictures of the white cat trying to get in through our kitchen window. She was quite mad because of the appetizing smell… The cat, not Irina.
